Bright Potpourri Flowers

Hello Everyone!

Today I’m playing along with a new-to-me challenge called Color My Heart Color Dare. I was originally going to use this card as my entry but when I read the rules, I realised that the tiny bit of green on the flower stems wouldn’t work – but that’s OK, it was a joy to use this cheerful combo to make another card!

To start with, I created three inky panels using Saltwater Taffy, Mustard Seed and Carved Pumpkin distress inks. Then I used the beautiful Poppystamps Potpourri flowers die to cut out some flowers. This die cuts seven different flowers in one go which is so handy!

I embossed a black panel using a frame die (although it’s a bit difficult to see in the photos) and then arranged all my flowers within that frame. When I was finally happy with the arrangement, I stuck them all down and added a very old Hero Arts sentiment to complete my card.

Thanks for stopping by!
